All too often we fail to “find the time” to go to the range for quality and specific training to maintain proficiency with our weapons. While it is important to get that range time, we all have blocks of 10 to 20 minutes to work our dry fire routine. A good dry fire routine can be more beneficial that sending those bullets downrange and is definitely more cost effective.

I once met a national competitor pistol shooter who told me “I only live fire to confirm my dry fire practice”. That is a powerful statement and shows the confidence of having a great dry fire routine.

Dry fire does not have to be boring and repetitive. We can choose to work on very specific areas to fine tune and maintain proficiency. Your dry fire routine must be done safely. Ensure all ammunition is in another location and you are free from any distractions. Make sure you have a safe backdrop, just in case Murphy shows up.

I encourage you to reply and let me know how you maintain proficiency when you are unable to have that quality range time that we all enjoy.
Be safe!
